Find out how to save a fortune with free gifts on your birthday – Money Saving Amy

There are so many wonderful birthday gifts, many of which don’t require anything else to be purchased. You can simply walk into the store, show your loyalty card and walk away with a completely free item. So here’s a look at the wonderful birthday gifts you could get too.

Let’s start with the freebies that don’t require any additional spending.

Fancy a free Krispy Kreme?

Krispy Kreme

You can claim one free donut at any time during your birthday month. You will receive this by email on the first of the month and all you have to do is scan your Krispy Kreme app in store to claim your treat, you can choose any donut! I went for the ‘brookie’ which was delicious and worth £3.25.


Claim a free sweet treat from Greggs on your birthday, and it’s valid for a whole month after your birthday. All you have to do is enable the birthday gift in your Greggs app wallet and scan your app in the store to claim your treat. Don’t forget that if you work with Octopus, O2 or Virgin Media you can also get a free hot drink from Gregg’s, a weekly offer. I opted for an original glazed donut worth £1, but you can choose any sweet treat and it can be worth up to £1.45.


Just by signing up to the Costa app you can get a free sweet treat, which you can claim up to seven days after your birthday. This will be shown in the rewards section of your Costa app. I opted for a millionaire’s shortbread worth £2.70.

citizen King

Burger King offers a free whopper burger, or vegan whopper burger. To receive this free burger, you must be logged into the app at least seven days before your birthday and have opted in to receive email marketing communications or push notifications. The offer is valid for 14 days from your birthday.

At Hobbycraft you can get a discount

Hobby craft

You can get a free £5 spend at Hobbycraft when you sign up to the free Hobbycraft club. Your voucher will be added to the app on your birthday and is valid for 35 days from your birthday. This is a fantastic freebie to stock up on your favorite craft supplies.

Body shop

The Body Shop is offering £5 free for your birthday as long as you’ve shopped in the last 12 months. You can spend this online or in store and is valid until one month after your birthday.


You get a free donut in your Lidl app, usually valid for a week. If you don’t like donuts, you can also choose a cookie. The full list of donuts and cookies you can choose from can be found in your app.

Hotel chocolate

Get a free £5 spend at Hotel Chocolate for your birthday. This offer is valid for one month from the moment you receive the birthday email from Hotel Chocolate, usually on your birthday. The minimum spend is €5.01, so you will have to spend a minimum amount on this. I got the 4 pack of signature truffles which cost £5.45, a delicious treat that only cost me 45p after the birthday voucher!


This one is a bit lucky, not everyone gets a birthday present from Morrisons, last year I didn’t get one, but this year I got a free packet of brownies. I could choose from different brownies, including free ones! So it’s worth checking your Morrisons app to see if you’re getting a birthday treat.


This is by far my favorite birthday freebie and is worth around £6! If you simply sign up for the free Lindt rewards program, you will receive a full 200 gram box of Lindt chocolates for your birthday. It is also valid for about 3 months, so you still have plenty of time to redeem it.


In the new Metro Rewards app you get a free birthday cookie, you can choose any flavor and no other purchase is necessary. Simply scan your card in store and claim your free gift.


If you’ve signed up for the free Chopstix app, you can claim a free small box on your birthday. The base consists of noodles, rice or both and you can choose a topping from things like firecracker chicken, salt and pepper potatoes or teriyaki beef. If you are not yet signed into the app, you can get 5 free spring rolls when you sign up.

Now some other brilliant freebies you can claim, but they may come at a small price.


As a gold member of Shopmium you will receive a free 180 gram bar of Cadbury chocolate on your birthday. There are a variety of flavors to choose from, such as caramel or fruit-n-nut. To be a Gold Member on Shopmium, you meet certain conditions that you can view in the app, such as submitting a 10-money-back request.


You can claim a birthday gift from Rituals if you’re signed up for their free membership card. The freebie may vary, in my case I received a free hand cream worth £12.90. With this one you do have to purchase an item to qualify, the cheapest item I saw in the store was a pack of facial tissues for £4.50.

Pizza Express

Pizza Express free birthday gifts vary depending on what level you are in the Pizza Express rewards app. You also need to spend at least £10 to claim the birthday reward. If you achieve bronze, you will receive a free dessert. If you reach Silver level, you will receive a free classic pizza worth up to €14.95! If you’re at gold level, you can choose from a pizza or a bottle of Prosecco or wine. You can combine these birthday gifts with any other reward offers, such as free dough balls and free drinks.


Users with a VIBE card can claim a free boost on their birthday, or 3 days before or after the day. To claim this, you will need photo identification. You must also have earned at least one point previously.

Here’s a short list of other birthday offers you could claim:
